What Makes You Interpret One Thing as a Sign and Another as a Coincidence?

If this makes any sense, what makes you interpret one thing as a sign, from the gods (or anything else spiritual, for that matter) and another as a coincidence?

For example, I was just reading about Loki turning into a type of fly and stinging a dwarf. Some kind of bug (it happened so fast that I wasn’t even sure what kind) flew down and landed on my page for a second and flew off. I’m in a room with the door shut, and I hadn’t seen it before then, and I haven’t seen it since.

When it comes to things like this, I don’t want to look too much into it, and yet I don’t want to not look enough into it, if I’m not completely rambling. I still have next to no experience, so any opinions, insights, or personal experiences with these things would be greatly appreciated.
